Celine Healy, author of Actually, It’s About Love!, started her formal work career as an accountant and wound up in the film industry after asking others to join her on a film project. She made a conscious decision to change her life and developed a real plan to turn her goals into a reality. In her book, she shares her ideas in an effort to help readers achieve greatness in their lives. Healy offers various techniques for changing one’s life path, managing life goals and becoming more successful in the short and long term.

Healy’s main focus is on offering strategies for building a better life for yourself. It begins with recognizing your own inner beauty, strength and having the courage to develop each of these areas fully in order to reach your potential. The author stresses that success and failure in life are mutable, but love is constant. Love knows when to “show up” and will enter your life only when you find balance and replace self-loathing with the highest form of self-love.

The most promising Life Path as described in the book fulfills a person’s life purpose, and it includes finding, exploring and enhancing/clarifying your natural talents, rediscovering your true identity and establishing life goals. These goals may include renewing a personal relationship with God, rebuilding your spiritual foundation, uncovering your wealth opportunities, setting realistic goals, utilizing forgiveness in your personal life, removing negative influences from your life and developing positive Chakras (your higher self).

I recommended this book for anyone who appreciates self-help advice on developing strategies for a fuller life. Some of the information can be found elsewhere, but it is a good book for teaching one the basics of developing more positive attitudes towards life.
